Canteen furniture to go

Each year we try to extend our range of office furniture which is available from stock, and this year we have exceeded even our own expectations.

We have increased the variety on offer in most areas including our ranges of canteen and restaurant furniture.

Last year we introduced some very contemporary glass tops canteen tables and these have proved very popular. As well as being stylish and easy to clean they are also only slightly more expensive than our standard wood finish tables.

For this year we have introduced the Brunch Bistro table, which has a very attractive curved wireframe leg. This design feature is reflected in the matching canteen chair backs which also have an elegant arched appearance.

The Brunch Bistro range of canteen furniture is available in a natural beech or dark wenge finish. The leg frames are available in a satin aluminium finish or chrome for that traditional look.

A frightening image no doubt, but logical if you consider that most public conveniences are professionally cleaned twice a day, whereas the most a keyboard can expect is a dusting every few days, but hardly ever a good deep clean.

Stacking chairs – Innovative designs from Elite

Folding or stacking chairs have been around in many shapes and forms for the last 50 years, ranging from the good old polypropylene chair seen in most schools and social centres, to some designs which used state of the art materials and construction methods

Stacking and folding chairs were designed to offer flexible and occasional seating for large numbers of people, for short periods of time. As soon as the event was over the folding or stacking chairs could be piled onto trolleys and stored away until the next time they were needed. The room or hall could then be used for other purposes.

The chairs were light, durable and cheap, but not too comfortable and function was always more important than form
